transfer music from Ipod to PC

Hi
Now that I've managed to get my son's laptop back up, how can he get his music from his Ipod back on to the laptop?  Undecided

Please be careful.  What's on the PC is normally deemed to be the "master" copy so if you just sync your iPod with an "empty" PC then you are likely to lose the contents of the iPod.

Re: transfer music from Ipod to PC

That's exactly the point.  For some reason, Apple think that the only reason someone would copy music from the Ipod to the computer is to pirate it.  Nothing like getting a new PC, because your old one dies  Undecided

This is one of the reasons I swapped from Apple to HTC for my phone as I was fed up with iTunes 'interpreting' what I wished to do Angry

Might be worth trying Media Monkey (http://www.mediamonkey.com/)  It claims to be able to sync to an IPod using a built in plug-in.  Far nicer than ITunes if you don't need all the "Store" stuff.

Re: transfer music from Ipod to PC

I've used mediamonkey before, it's a lovely bit of software and allows dragging and dropping between iPod and PC in both directions. Still use it to rename, tag and add images to my music.
